Each Medicare supplement policy and certificate currently available from an issuer shall be made available to all applicants who qualify under this subsection without regard to age.

(b)

is less than six (6) months, the issuer shall reduce the period of any preexisting condition exclusion by the aggregate of the period of creditable coverage applicable to the applicant as of the enrollment date. The Secretary shall specify the manner of the reduction under this subsection. (c) Except as provided in Subsection (b) and Section 365:10-5-140, subsection (a) and subsection (d) of this Section shall not be construed as preventing the exclusion of benefits under a policy, during the first six (6) months, based on a preexisting condition for which the policyholder or certificateholder received treatment or was otherwise diagnosed during the six (6) months before the coverage became effective. (d) At least one of the ten standardized Medicare supplement plans currently available from an issuer shall be made available to all applicants who qualify under this subsection by reason of disability. The issuer shall not deny or condition the issuance or effectiveness of any Medicare supplement policy or certificate available for sale in this State because of the health status, claims experience, receipt of health care, or medical condition of an applicant where an application for such policy or certificate is submitted during the six (6) month period beginning with the first month in which an individual first enrolled for benefits under Medicare Part B. (e) In the event Social Security backdates the Medicare enrollment date, the six-month enrollment period shall be calculated from the date the individual first receives notification of approval of Medicare coverage.
